Swedish home furnishings major Ikea said it has launched its e-store in the city offering more than 7,500 products.
“India’s retail landscape is changing at a scale and pace not seen before driven by increasing urbanisation and changing customer behaviours. To be a key partner to the many of India in this journey, Ikea is also transforming. Today we roll out our multi-channel, digital first approach with Mumbai being amongst the first few markets worldwide, where we are bringing alive this transformation,” Ikea India CEO Peter Betzel said.
The online store will offer 1,000 products priced below Rs 200, it said adding that all the prices are the same across India, both in offline store and online. In India, Ikea currently has more than 55 suppliers with 45,000 direct employees and 400,000 people in the extended supply chain.
